Sorry I'm so late, but I've been out a-walkin'
Trying to find a way to tell you what I think you already know
I'd never want to hurt you, cause darling I still love you
But things aren't like they used to be - it's time for lettin' go

I wasn't out there lookin', but a month ago last Sunday
I met someone just like you in line at the grocery store
We've been spending time together, yeah she knows all about you
The truth is she can give me what you can't anymore

(Chorus:)
I know I promised you forever
I never thought I'd see this day
If only I could write the pages
Our story wouldn't end this way

I feel so much better knowing we could have this moment
But it looks like it may rain soon, and it's getting kind of late
Hon', I'll always bring you roses every time I come to visit
The caretaker's waiting he wants to close the gate

(Repeat chorus)

It wouldn't end this way
